A man was sentenced to charges related to a robbery of a Citgo gas station that occurred in June, Jackson County State’s Attorney Michael Carr announced Monday. 

Quovadis D. Myers, 18, was charged with robbery — a class two felony — and sentenced to serve three years in the Department of Corrections, followed by two years of mandatory supervised release. 

Myers was one of three suspects sentenced following the robbery of the Citgo on South Illinois Avenue on June 5. Dylan Patton, 18, and Johnathan Thomas, 18, entered guilty pleas earlier this year, according to the Carbondale Police Department’s website.

Myers was also charged with aggravated battery because he punched the clerk during the robbery while another individual took the cash register drawer, the Jackson County state’s attorney’s office said.

A Murphysboro man was sentenced to serve four years in prison after pleading guilty to possessing 16 pounds of cannabis with intent to sell, Jackson County State’s Attorney Michael Carr announced Monday. 

Officers from the Illinois Department of Corrections Parole Division conducted a compliance check at the residence of Deborez Taylor, 30, last October, where they discovered the drugs.  

Taylor must also serve two years of mandatory supervision following his release.

A man was sentenced to serve one year in the Illinois Department of Corrections followed by one year of supervised release for charges related to a routine traffic violation in August, Jackson County State’s Attorney Michael Carr announced Monday. 

Jeremy Clark, 32, pleaded guilty Wednesday, to charges of unlawful possession of a controlled substance, a Class 4 felony. 

Clark was stopped on March 21, 2014, by an Illinois State Trooper for not wearing his seatbelt. When he exited his car, he began running from the scene. A Carbondale Police Officer followed Myers when he threw down a baggie containing cocaine, which the officer found.
